Celebrating the 73rd Anniversary of Lok Sewa Aayog (Nepal Public Service Commission)

The Lok Sewa Aayog, more commonly known worldwide as the Nepal Public Service Commission, commemorates its 73rd anniversary this year. This respected constitutional body was instituted under the directives of Article 64 of the Interim Government of Nepal's Act promulgated in 2007 BS, and it has been functioning in its official capacity since 1st Ashadh, 2008.

The Commission is formed by a panel of five accomplished officers, including the chairman and four additional members. The constitution mandates that at least half of these members should have an extensive experience in government service, spanning twenty years or more. The remaining members are culled from diverse disciplines, including science, technology, art, literature, law, public administration, and sociology, who have achieved recognition through research, teaching, or significant contributions in their respective fields.

The terms of office for the chairman and the members of the Commission are six years from their respective dates of appointment. While there is a general provision for non-reappointment, a member can be considered for the position of chairman.

The primary duty of the Lok Sewa Aayog is to select the most qualified candidates for vacancies in the Federal Civil Service and recommend them for permanent appointment. In addition, the Commission also has the responsibility of conducting written examinations for posts in security agencies and organized institutions.

Presently, the Lok Sewa Aayog is engaged in the recruitment process for as many as 105 different organizations. By maintaining a rigorous, fair, and thorough selection process, the Lok Sewa Aayog ensures that only the most qualified, dedicated, and innovative individuals are recommended for public service roles. This contributes significantly to the sustained growth and development of the nation.

As the Lok Sewa Aayog celebrates its 73rd year of operation, we appreciate its significant role in shaping Nepal's public service sector and its steadfast commitment to upholding the values of fairness, meritocracy, and transparency in the recruitment process.
